In this instructable I will show you how to make a chubby string heart. It is basically a repeat of a previous Instructable that I posted last Easter, String Easter Eggs which is made from wrapping string dredge through a stiffener around a balloon. This time around I am using two balloons to form a heart shape, making this fun Valentines craft.
In my String Easter Egg instructable I used a sugar mixture as a stiffener, it works well but I wanted to try something different this time so I used white glue. I used a mixture of roughly half glue half water and mixed it in a small plastic container. Dredge the string through the glue mixture and wrap around the two balloons. Wrap tightly to hold the two balloons together. Keep wrapping until you have a dense network of string criss-crossing the heart.
